Mocha and After Effects Puppet Tool

August 24, 2015

Jason Hearne from the Game Show Network shows a technique that combines the power of Mocha’s planar tracker with the mesh warping capabilities of After Effect’s puppet tool.

This advanced technique adds a stationary texture to a moving person and captures secondary soft tissue motion with a set of multi-planar tracks. Jason and the GSN team improved upon a technique from a previous Mocha tutorial to create a complex transition from bare chest to painted skin in a short amount of time.

This technique can be seen on the promo for Skin Wars, a popular GSN program.
